The hotel has a wonderful view and it is in a quite spot BUT the bed sheets and towels were smelly and dirty, to the point that we had to ask them to change them immediately, the day after we arrived. No elevator so you have to carry your luggage up the stairs, which is kind of heavy after you... More

This is a hidden gem in the heart Arenal National Park. With a view of the Arenal Volcano from your room! Staff was very friendly, room was affordable and they even give you breakfast vouchers. I would highly recommend them to anyone visiting. This was my first time in Costa Rica and really enjoyed the 3 days I spent here.

It is 2 km away from civilisation in el castillo and la Fortuna is a good 30 min drive the other side of the volcano but the location is brilliant if you intend to... More

We chose Arenal Tropical Garden both because of our initial contact with Eduardo, who manages the property, and also the price. While all we wanted was a place to stay, we ended up with a friend and a new family. Eduardo was extremely helpful right from the initial contact and instilled an instant sense of trust as we embarked on... More

Property was beautiful, with gorgeous views! Owner was very nice and helpful, and even washed our laundry for us. There is no ac in the rooms, but we left the windows open for a nice breeze and enjoyed the fresh air. There were hornets on the balcony when we arrived, but the owner sprayed, and then everything else was fine.... More

Your property is beautiful, with excellent service and accomodations. The views are spectacular. The rooms are spacious with great decorating. Breakfast was excellent! The only reason that we rated as Very Good, instead of Excellent, was because no WI FI is offered. We were traveling for recreation, but still needed WI FI for daily business purposes. We had to travel... More

Here you'll get a comfortable small hotel where you can rest.It has the best view of the volcano and the lake, all in a same spot where you can sit down with a bottle of wine and just enjoy and relax.
